 Gary Prince, one of our company members brought this article to my attention. It was shared with him by his aunt, Mary krenowicz. Gary said,

My aunt sent me this article, and I thought you might like to see it.  Though it is singing the praises of “Writer’s Theater,” I think it translates to what we are doing with reader’s.

I agree with Gary. You can link here to the article by Terry Teachout called

Wedding Photos needed!

Posted on Updated on

monogamy-192786-mWe need your help!! At the end of this month I am part of a reader’s theatre production of Standing On Ceremony: the gay marriage plays. We are looking for photos of same sex couples. Preferably in a wedding type scenario. Color photos preferred but not required. These will be displayed in the lobby/audience area during the performance. If you have something like this and want to participate please send us a message or message Eric Nepom on Facebook and he will let you know where to send them. Thank you for your support and any passing on to those who might be able to help. Hope to see your photo at the show, and you if you can make it!

I should mention that, if the photos are of someone else, we need their permission to put them up!

Auditions for W;t, The One Act Plays and Time Stands Still

Posted on

Happy New Year!  Isn’t it Romantic had two successful performances on the last Sunday of December so every reading will have two performances from now on.  Looking ahead to 2014 we will have auditions this month for Wit (performed in March), The One Act plays (April) and Time Stands Still (May).
Auditions are Monday and Tuesday Jan 13-14 in the rehearsal room on the second floor of the Majestic Theater.  We will start at 7:30 PM both evenings.
The dream of having more opportunities to perform in front of eager audiences while working with skilled actors is coming true.  Please support the other productions the way your production was supported.  We always need light operators and sometimes sound board operators.  Volunteer to help productions when you are not cast. Make this a true actor’s company.
Here is a character write up for Time Stands Still.
Time Stands Still
by Donald Margulies
Directed by Robert Leff
Auditions Monday January 13th and Tuesday January 14th; 7:30 PM
Performances Sunday May 25 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Time Stands Still focuses on Sarah and James, a photojournalist and a foreign correspondent trying to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy.  Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, and together, making a difference.  But when their own story takes a sudden turn, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life.
Sarah Goodwin, late 30s – early 40s, a photojournalist, passionate about her work, intelligent, wounded by a roadside bomb.
James Dood, late 30s – early 40s, a freelance journalist, emotionally shattered after seeing a women and children bombed, once an idealist; now craves a conventional life.
Richard Ehrlich, 50 – 55, a photo editor, Sarah’s former lover, practical about his work, worrier, concerned, protective.
Mandy Bloom, 25, an event planner, guileless, emotionally open, trying to find her place in the world.
Note:  Mandy’s age is a major story element in the play.  This will be taken into account when casting the role.
